You have failed me for the last time, Admiral.
~ Darth Vader punishes Admiral Ozzel for his incompetence by Force Choking him to death.
These outbursts are painful... and so is watching you fail.
~ Emperor Belos belittling Hunter for his failures.
This is my single question for all of you: Why is it you demons of the lower ranks are so utterly weak? You shouldn't be satisfied merely being among the Twelve Kizuki. That is only the start. You must devour more humans, gain more power. THAT is the path to becoming useful to me. For over a century, the upper members of the Twelve Kizuki have remained unchanged, and it has always been those members who have disposed of the Hashira. Meanwhile, how many times have YOU been replaced?
~ Muzan Kibutsuji admonishing the lower ranks of the Twelve Kizuki, before mercilessly killing them, after Rui's death.

A common type of villain who is overconfident, has huge ambitions, refused to give up and has little to no tolerance for failure whatsoever. They try to prevent the heroes from foiling their plans and if they do get defeated they would often act in rage, killing or violently abusing their minions for failing to carry out their orders. Such villains also tend to warn their minions of the penalty if they fail them, which is most likely said punishment. These villains often go hand-in-hand with cruel and oppressive tyrants and they are also known as a sore loser.

However, some of these villains can have a redeeming feature if they see one of their minions do something so evil, they see it as a failure. For example, when Garrosh Hellscream learned Overlord Krom'gar destroyed the Thal'Darah Grove, he killed Krom'gar for failure to secure the land and instead laying waste to it and slaughtering innocent people. Some villains, such as the MCU Vulture, simply fire their minions instead of killing them. In Toomes' case, he killed the first Shocker by mistake after he threatened his family. Other villains such as Jenner, killed his loyal minion (Sullivan) after said minion realized how horrible he was. Some particularly brutal failure-intolerant villains, such as Star King Bazeu, may not stop at punishing their minions for their failures, but may also target their minions' loved ones as a means of punishment.

Since these villains generally don't accept defeat, similar to cowards, they often die (should they indeed do so) in disgrace and rarely with honor. Often it is done both on incompetent minions and scapegoats due to the fact they failed their said goals foiled by heroes and end up punishing their minions more than they should. However, there are exceptions that can be made for some failure-intolerant villains who actually do die in honor and accept their defeat, but said exceptions are very rare. An excellent example of this would be Darth Vader.
